Printing the New Sticker at Exact Size
For paper, use a good 24-pound bond. Semi-matt surfaces can absorb the ink and give a nice professional look to the sticker. Fan the paper before loading the printer. To print using Picasa 3, double click on the image in Library View, then File, Print…, select Shrink to Fit, click on Printer Setup, Effects, and type in 54% of Normal Size. You may need to make minor adjustments based on the type of printer. Close the menu box and select print. To print more than one copy, in the print information window, select copies per photo by clicking on the + repeated times. In my setup, the printed label is the exact size and the designations line up exactly with the pins. Just cut these out with a scissors and affix using small pieces of rolled tape. As always, use proper precaution around hot components when using flammable paper labels. Paper labels are not designed for chips running hot. When prototyping and wiring is completed, the labels easily remove.
